Paul Graham
Irishman in Iraq
This book is in the format of a “war diary” as the author transitions from being a retired Northern Ireland Police Officer, into the shadowy world of the Private Security Contractor, working in the post Iraq War reconstruction period. It lifts the veil on the day to day existence of a motley group of adventurers on the British side, charged with helping to train and shape the new Iraqi Police Service. Want to know how your tax dollars were spent? This will give you a glimpse of at least some of what went on. In the epilogue it explains how the process of writing the book took the author from the UK and on a life-changing move to live in the USA and become a US citizen.

Paul R Graham grew up in Northern Ireland, with a brief spell as a child in Australia.

He served for 28 challenging years both in uniform and as a detective, leaving the PSNI in June 2005. Later that year he travelled to Iraq as a Private Security Contractor.
